Utah Valley University will present an original production of “The Story Stone” Sept. 26-30 and Oct.1-5 at the Noorda Regional Theatre on campus. “The Story Stone” tells the story of two teens from warring tribes who find they must work together to access the magic of the story stone. The script was written by UVU graduate Wendy Gourley and is geared toward audience members ages 12 and older.
“We are excited to be producing a piece that was entirely written and created by one of our own,” said Christopher Clark, chair of the UVU Theatre Department. “It’s a magical and beautiful fable that features stunning design and exciting performances and leaves audiences with a powerful message.”
The production will feature live performances by George Grant, a professional theater musician from Pocatello, ID. Grant uses native aboriginal instruments and vocal techniques to enhance the storytelling. All the actors are current UVU students, and Barrett Ogden, a UVU adjunct faculty member, directs the play.
Show times are at 7:30 p.m., with a public matinee Oct. 5 at 10 a.m. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased online at uvu.edu/theatre, smithstix.com or at the Noorda Regional Theatre box office. For additional information, please contact Traci Hainsworth at 801-863-6739.
